Allison Gantt is a current Ph.D. student at the University of Delaware specializing in Mathematics Education. Before transitioning to academia, Allison taught secondary mathematics for seven years, primarily at the John Dickinson School in the Red Clay Consolidated School District in Delaware. She was selected as the John Dickinson School’s Teacher of the Year for 2020.

Since beginning her Ph.D., Allison has strived to blend her commitments to both research and practice with a focus on making connections between studies of teaching and learning. Allison co-authored an article in Educational Studies in Mathematics about how to support middle school students’ graphing reasoning with systems. She is a recipient of the Fontana Family Graduate Award for her potential to impact the field of education.

Allison has presented her work through academic venues such as the Psychology of Mathematics Education – North American branch conference and venues for local teachers like the Delaware Math Equity Conference. During the pandemic, she worked in collaboration with teachers leaders from the Caesar Rodney and NCCVT districts to support a problems-of-practice video series designed to address the varied challenges teachers were facing during remote teaching. Allison joined the Delaware Math Coalition Math Camp facilitation team in 2021 and continues to play an instrumental role in planning and supporting the professional learning each summer.
